Welcome to my blog! I'm a stay at home of 3 beautiful children and I love to sew! I have been sewing ever since I was a little girl and my gran taught me everything from machine-sewing to cross-stitch. I started making Barbie clothes this past Christmas for my daughter and I loved it! It's so much fun to design and create fashions for the ultimate model - Barbie! I opened a shop on Etsy in May of this year and I have met a lot of talented artists that I enjoy networking with. So, take some time to look around, read my posts, and enjoy!

Jennifer's Favorite Finds

Well, dolls, I am still reeling from this:


At the beginning of last month, I was contacted by Jennifer to do this segment. I was so honored that she would pick me out of so many handmade artisans in the St. Louis area (ok, I'm not technically in St. Louis, but I'm from there!). And now, after weeks of planning and sewing, the segment aired live today!! It's so very surreal. I know that it's just local TV (mind you, the St. Louis viewing area is pretty far reaching!) and not national, but it's still HUGE. Last year when I started sewing doll clothes, it was just to make my daughter happy. And then several people suggested I try selling online, which I fell in love with doing. And craft shows are fun, too. I guess I never really believed I could be very successful. I'm just me. No one special. Right?

Well, I'm still just me, I'm still not very special. But I do have a very special God-given talent to sew and create doll fashions. It feels good to know that I'm making lots of little girls (and moms, dads, and collectors) happy!

So, watch the clip. Tell me what you think. And then shop for that little girl that is special to you! (Even if she is the child within!) To celebrate this momentous occasion with me, use coupon code SHOWME for 10% your purchase now through July 2.
